WWE Looking To Get RAW & SmackDown Replays On The WWE Network
WWE executive George Barrios stated at the annual ROTH Conference that one of the key factors in the negotiations for WWE’s new cable television home is the replays for RAW and SmackDown. Barrios noted that the company is wanting to get availability in airing the replays to both shows on their own WWE Network subscription service, something that their deal with NBC Universal currently doesn’t allow (within a 30-day period). Basically put, WWE wants to shorten that window of time.
Speaking of the WWE Network, the company issued a mass e-mail today informing fans who had ordered the network but canceled their subscription, that they can come back and get another free week if they sign up by Saturday, March 22nd.
